Shree Nubri School was started in 2011 by a local man called Nyima Lama. After being educated in Kathmandu, Nyima worked hard to build a school in his area so that the children of his community could also get education.
Shree Nubri School is a boarding school with 90 primary students, located in the village of Ghap in the Manaslu area. The students are from the surrounding villages, some several days walk away. Most local families are subsistence farmers who cannot afford to pay for their children´s food when they are away from home. The school therefore provides food and lodging for all of the students. The government pays this for 50 of the students, however the remaining 40 need funding from elsewhere to stay in the school.
With your help, we are aiming to provide:
Food and housing costs (such as gas, blankets etc) for 40 students to attend a whole year at Shree Nubri School.
Food and housing costs for a whole year for six former Shree Nubri students attending High school in nearby Arughat.
One school teacher´s salary.
One assistant teacher´s salary.
Nubri School was built in 2011 with donations from a Scottish fundraising trek. In the first year 25 students were enrolled. This grew to 50 students in 2012, and in 2013 six students progressed to High school in the town of Arughat (4 days walk down the valley).
The school building was destroyed in the devastating earthquake of May 2015. No children were injured, but Nyima narrowly avoided being crushed inside a collapsing building in Kathmandu.
Nyima established a temporary school in 2016 and 2017 using tents from the UN at first, and subsequently tin roofing from the destroyed school.
In 2018 the charity Mountain Child finished construction of a new, larger, earthquake resistant school. There are now 90 students enrolled at the school, but the government is providing for only 50 of them.
With your help we hope to keep the remaining 40 students in school for one more year!
